More than likely, every athlete has, at one point in his or her career, experienced pain in the anterior part of the lower leg, or the shin. An injury such as this is known as a shin splint. A shin splint, more formally known as medial tibial stress syndrome (MTSS), is a term that indicates pain in the anterior part of the shin. There are several factors that can contribute to a shin splint injury, including weak lower leg muscles, shoes that do not provide enough cushioning or support, and training errors. Those who suffer from varus foot, a tight heel cord, a hyper mobile pronated foot, or forefoot supination are more likely to acquire shin splints.
